Student Advisory Group

The 2022-2023 Student Advisory Group

Fifteen high school students from across the Bay Area will participate in UCBHSSP's 2022-2023 Student Advisory Group.

Participants will explore the question - How can students use their voice (and understanding of the past) to become agents of change? Working collaboratively, students will identify a problem in their community and apply change analysis strategies in order to communicate a solution and spread awareness. Students enrolled in public schools and students who participated in the previous student advisory board are especially encouraged to apply. Flier

In December 2021, the UC Berkeley History-Social Science Project launched its first student advisory group. This group of diverse high school students from across the Bay Area researched, wrote about and shared undertold histories of the Bay Area. Check out the student work and the lesson sequence it informed.
